Hi! After sorting out how many points we actually will want to buy/need, DH and I are torn on where to buy. Ideally, we'd like to stay at different resorts, which is why we want to buy DVC, not just one place all the time like a traditional timeshare. All of the resorts have something special, and I think they look fantastic! I'd like to try them all- and our schedule is quite flexible (we both work from home) to be abel to do it. That being said, any of the ones really close to parks (BLT, BCv, BWV)- I could not imagine wanting to stay at often or long. Maybe a couple of nights once in awhile - the reason being we like the peace and quiet of coming back 'home' after the parks. We are also the types to hang out at the pool for the day, and not rush around at parks every day. I expect if anything that will increase as we become DVC members! I expect the places we're more regularly going to want to stay at will likely be: SSR, AKV, OKW, and VWL. And we love beaches, so I expect VB or HHI will happen as well- and I could see us down the road buying into one of those if we loved it a lot, as an add on... but that isn't something we are looking into right now, and would want to try out a bit first. First thinking of buying DVC, we thought we'd do 100 at SSR and 100 at AKV. However, after more research (and my husband learning more about kindani) DH really thinks we should have just one location with points for ease of planning (and to keep it simple if we add on a beach one down the road). He is also really liking the food options at AKV better, the childcare options and activities, and the pool/waterpark. He feels it is the best resort (with SSR coming in second) for him. I happen to like the ease of getting groceries at SSR (parking right there!), shopping at DDD, and the spa. But I would be happy at either I believe, as long as I could have some variety over the years. It seems to me that we are less interested in the most popular of resorts. So if we bought all at AKV, do you think it would be fairly easy for us to get a 2bedroom at OKW or SSR for say 5 or 6 nights during a value season from time to time? It seems that it would be easier to do that, then buy SSR and try to get in to AKV for a week? Or else we do the 100/100 swap between the 2 every year? I hear the good thing about 2 contracts is easier resale, and also for inheritence... but honestly, it would seem nothing is great for resale in this economy? So does that even matter? One other thing, any other comments from those that own at either SSR or AKV (or both!) are welcome- I'd love to get more feedback as we're deciding. The other thing is, SSR resale is really good right now, so we could get more points there... but then that would be more points with MF, so I'm not sure about that either. As I said, DH feels good about 200 at AKV. And resale on that isn't that great, so I'm not sure if that one makes sense or if we'd go with disney on it- would have to crunch all the numbers and sort out the closing costs or incentive options. Thank you- this board has been SO helpful!!!
